I made the meatballs last night but altered the sauce to a light white sauce instead of the heavy cream. The meatballs were very good, using the pork rinds was a bit of genius. No bread crumbs to worry about, easy to crush, and added a nice texture. The sauce turned out okay but I had to use frozen spinach so it probably could have been better. All in all a thumbs up inspite of my alterations.
